Come to think of it, there was a report in the newspaper that a few cities here suffered a 380v (160v over the max) power surge in a few thousand homes. Might be related, I didn't read past the title so... Nyea. The area where it occurred was way too small anyway.

Also ask the maintenance personnel for the Alaska pipeline how solar storms keep them on their toes. I think this is very real, though it is like predicting where and when the next tornado or hurricane will strike. But if you live in "Tornado Alley" or on the coast, you prepare. Here are a few links.

Now I am not into all this gloom and doom, the world is going to end stuff, but for the past decade we have become more and more dependent on micro technology. So it only stands to reason that these solar storms will have a deeper impact on our daily lives.
Holy moly. I'll look into that as I live in quebec and never heard of this! I was 3 at the time though...

It's happened a lot of times before, and it's going to happen again.
I don't really think that it's as dangerous as many people make it seem like.

Although, I do think that the 2012 thing is a bit creepy..

I'd just like to chime in and say my power was fine, so was my net, WiFi and cellular signal all day.

No strange occurrences.

This should ring a bell to anyone that knows much about astronomy and science. The sun is only a small factor in the tempurature of the earth. The reason the earth is as warm as it is, is due to our atmosphere. Without it the heat radiation would dissipate into space, leaving this planet as cold and dead as mars.

I agree but I'm assuming his info would indicate changes in the sun's temperature has affected us more than changes in our atmosphere... then again no proof as of yet produced.

I'm going to post it again:

Please for the love of all things we love on this planet.......


2012 and any doomsday BS related to it is complete BS. Total, utter, insane BS.

There is no 'galactic' alignment that is going to happen. Ask any astronomer.

There is no 'pole shift' going to happen. Ask the NOAA.

There is no 'solar flare' going to be released by the sun large enough to wipe out most life on the planet. Ask any solar astronomer.

The planet is not going have a giant shift in it's 'tilt' as it already shifts approximately every 26000 years. Ask any astronomer, it's called precession.

Wow, easy people. The OP was about the Sun going into its active period for solar flares and the EMP damage these cause. Please read the sources. I think the last flare to reach earth was a couple of weeks ago when it fried a satellite and it went bonkers. That major eruption they talk about was directed away from earth. I am more interested in protecting my electronics. Maybe even make some Faraday cages for my computers.
